A Contemporary Home Perched Above the Hudson Valley Asks $6.25M
A-list celebrities often take refuge in the Hudson Valley. For example, Glenn Close and Bruce Willis have both owned properties there in the past. Providing peace and quiet in nature just a short commute away from NYC, it’s certainly an attractive area. And, for buyers seeking a home here with a high budget, newly-listed 20 Windy Ridge in Cold Spring is a must-see.
Listed for $6.25 million, the 6,607-square-foot contemporary makes it feel as if you’re on top of the world, floating 1,000 feet above sea level. It was originally built in 1966, but the residence was recently transformed by developer and Hudson Valley native Mark Mancinelli, who is also the seller.
“This is not serial mass market stuff,” Mancinelli says. “I only choose projects that I think have incredible merit and potential to showcase the great drama of the Hudson Valley. These projects take years to complete and the financial outcome is always uncertain.”
Mancinelli’s decorated background includes the renovation and development of several renowned New York properties, such as 304 Spring Street in the West Village. The developer’s style focuses on an inside-out theme, which is on full display here.
Conceptualized in collaboration with architect Gregory Sharp, the contemporary home has cantilevered spaces and terraces to show off endless natural vistas. It’s anchored by a geometric modern staircase surrounded by open spaces. Walking all the way through, past the sleek kitchen, the impressive 1,800-square-foot terrace awaits.
For accommodations, there are four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, creating a perfect getaway for a group. There’s also a pool, surrounded by a 1,600-square-foot patio and beautiful gardens, to make the trip that much sweeter in the summer.
Melissa Carlton of Houlihan Lawrence holds the listing with views and privacy that will remain secure since the four-acre estate sits amidst deeded and unbuildable parcels.
